I had the exact same problem, but I couldn't solve yet.
This is the exception
System.TypeInitializationException was unhandled by user code
Message="The type initializer for 'MyTheBeerHouse.MB.TheBeerHouse.Globals' threw an exception."
at MyTheBeerHouse.MB.TheBeerHouse.UI.BasePage.OnPreIn it(EventArgs e) in D:\Visual Studio 2005\LIVRO WebSite Programming\MyTheBeerHouse\MyTheBeerHouse\App_Code \BasePage.vb
at System.Web.UI.Page.ProcessRequestMain(Boolean includeStagesBeforeAsyncPoint, Boolean includeStagesAfterAsyncPoint)
Please, if someone could help me to solve this problem, I'll appreciate !!!
